What a disasterous WC Final for the French hosts so far. Surely they expected at least one podium, and yet their best jumper yesterday was 17th.

 

They'll need to win today's class to have any chance. Let's see...

So, according to Longines, average of 69.25 and 71.80 in one row is 70.225, but in the other row it's 70.525 (which is correct).

 

I wonder if we can actually trust anything from Longines after seeing this. :p

Dear Lord, I was feeling bad because he came rather close but fell back after that last fence...and then that sprint :yikes::( 

 

That was like 5 centimeters away from €200

Meanwhile over in Paris, Werth went to turn the tables and grab second consecutive victory, briliant competition. :bowdown:

 

 

And a nice opportunity to get those judges wet. :p
